DeepWit Essentials Week 12

I’m going to come right out and say I would love to offer a valid excuse for not having kept up with the blog chart. Honestly though, I don’t have one. Yes we have been busy with building a new website, where this blog will call home along all of our other awesome stuff. Yes, it is warming up, which means more time preparing the vegetable garden for planting and getting new fruit bushes in the ground. Yes, we did decide to start on a ridiculously huge release schedule for the year, with something like a release every week. Oh and have I mentioned I’ve taken up knitting? Ok I feel much better about having dropped off from the DeepWit Essentials posts in the last three months but I plan on making them a bi-weekly habit again, alongside writing more advice posts, how-to’s and Q & A’s. Maybe slide in a few guest posts and charts if I can manage to get anyone interested! And with no further chit chat let me start off on this weeks essential tunes.

This one is a bit older, from last month. Which lets be honest, with quality music there isn’t an expiration date. Thanks Stratospherik for always putting out quality music, we are big fans of the Stratoliner sound.



Up next, another one from last month we missed out on. This one comes from Ready Mix Records and Addex plus remixers. We are really partial to the Original and Forteba Remix.



And now for some more recent stuff, including this great remix on Lagaffee Tales. The entire release is lovely but the Lay-Far remix really hits the spot.



This one from the Allovers on Pole Position Records is exactly what we like in a Dub.



As a general rule, you can count on DeepClass Records to come up with some lovely deep stuff and this EP from Hraach is no exception.


Here is the latest from Adaptation Music with Yan Gordo is an all around charmer, especially the Yohan Esprada Remix.



Now for some floor moving sounds from Tim Andresen on his own label What Happens.


And it wouldn’t be fitting to make an entire chart without adding in our latest release with Venntaur, which has been blowing up across the globe, getting massive airplay and support due to how very awesome it is. Just Listen.


To finish off the digital side and bordering on the vinyl we have this remix from Kalabrese of “Signs” from the Howling. Something that should be in all our collections.


This Vinyl releases on Big Bait Records with Odysea, Georgi Barrel, Joseph Tacker and Hendrik Vogel is available now.


And the last of our chart this week is another Vinyl but in it’s pre-order stage from Muzik & Friendz and we love the Pablo Bolivar remix of Frederick Alonso & Pat Lezizmo‘s track “Tablao”.


See I told you, I’ve been busy.


DeepWit Essentials // Weeks 40 & 41

GW small

This week I want to take the time to bring to your attention one of the most important releases for us this year, our Global Witness Charity VA. This compilation’s main goal is to raise money for the Global Witness organisation, who’s Co-Founder and Director just won the TED Prize earlier this year. They have been working to make a difference in the world for 20 years and we wanted to be a part of making the world a better place. All proceeds from the label and artists involved in this release will be directly donated to the organisation, so please grab your copy today and help make the world a better place.

“Global Witness campaigns to change the system by exposing the economic networks behind conflict, corruption and environmental destruction. We find the facts. We uncover the story. We change the system.”

Music styles ranging from Chillout, Electronica to Indie Dance and of course Deep House.

Now to mellow way down and enjoy some new tunes from Etoka Records. This brand new release, available exclusively via their Bandcamp page is from Adverb, beautiful, eerie and ethereal, you can’t go wrong.

Now for some music from one of our favourite DJ’s Tim Angrave. This is a one of those releases that encourages a floating away to the sounds, a musical high if you will. You can find this one on Seamless Recordings.

When we stumbled across this release from Audio Units on Sinnmusik we were pleasantly surprised. Memory Replay is definitely the track for us with its deep and laid back vibes.

And then there is always that one track, I could just fall in love with and this is that track for me. I love Renate‘s voice and although the entire release is outstanding this remix from Sound Solutions is just right up my alley. Another great release from Bogota Records.

Now to something Deep from one of our favourite producers and the man running our sub-label, DeepWit Uncovered, Cadatta. Have a listen and explore the “other” sounds going on over there.

And of course, just in case you missed it, is our brand new release out this week which also happens to be our first ever LP. This beautiful 11 track release comes from Gareth Bilaney, who offers up a very diverse and satisfying Album from start to finish.

From deep digital to deep on vinyl we have the latest from Axe On Wax, with this addictive and groove filled piece of music. A very lovely piece of work to add to your collection with a certainty you can get some use out of the outstanding remix Liam Geddes gives to the Rhythm Operator‘s track “Illuminate Your Soul”.

Hello again Oh! Records. Please let me express to you how addicted I am to Claus Casper & Jean Philips remix of Jonathan Ryno‘s track “Slow Down”. Everyone should be playing this track.

And last but not least, because we all need a some funk in our lives from time to time, we turn to Cold Busted with this LP from Eddie Shinn. Outstanding cut’s all the way through.

DeepWit Essentials Week 9 & 10

I just want to start off by saying that after three years, this will be my 100th post here on the DeepWit blog. In the years I have written about our releases, how to send demo’s, how to fight piracy, the music we love and I’ve been lucky enough to interview some of our favourite artists and label owners. With almost three years from our very first release, I have never been happier with our decision to start up DeepWit and I look forward to everything that comes next 🙂

Lets start off with the one medium I hope to get DeepWit involved in, in the future. This beautiful Vinyl from Dilby on Bondage Music is one for your collection.

Now for a quick run down of the last two weeks best tracks we have come across, starting out with our latest release from Adjust, the owner behind Cosmic Disco Records. This track may sound familiar as we released a different version last year on our Autumn Sampler. “Get Out (Flute Dub)” featuring you know, a flute and remixes from David Oniani and the guys behind Adaptation Music, Tom Conrad & Andre Bonsor.

Chocky & Flumo Recordings, we love the music you release and this track is a great example of why.

This next one is from a really lovely release on Itom Records from Tibor Dragan, with three tracks to choose from, it was between the Original and the Marco Grandi Remix for us.

Onto a release from another regular label here on our blog chart, the latest release from What Happens from Jon Sweetname.

And this remix from Max Graef of KDIM on Odd Socks is just pure awesomeness.

Now for something from 1Trax and a new name for me, Silk 86. Really love the house floor groove of this track.

And for one more track for the floor we have a great take from Benny Grauer on Mood Music.

Now to move onto some really wickedly wonderfully LP’s. I love the well developed flow and the feel of being lost in a great album and all these three albums are exactly these types of Downtempo, Jazzy and Deep House moods that make perfect companions for everyday listening.

This album from from Flashbaxx is just stunning, quality music. I could easily loss myself in this album for hours and days on end. My neighbours will be hearing a lot of it this spring.

And if that wasn’t enough good music, I would highly recommend this outstanding album from Hamza. With a little more world beats flavour, its another Album for the music lovers.

To finish it off this week is a really unique and quality House & Deep House album from Alex Sosa on his label Lovely Records for those that need an album with a bit more umph in it.
